Long before directing 'And So It Goes,' Rob Reiner was a fixture in the entertainment business. The son of comedy legend Carl Reiner, Rob quickly stepped out of his famous father’s shadow and became a legend all on his own. Here are a few highlights from Rob Reiner’s amazing career.
Enter Laughing (1967)
One of Reiner's earliest acting roles was in the first film his father ever directed, 'Enter Laughing.'
